    Although the account of Frank's bad eyes was almost physically painful to read, the rest of the story didn't seem too odd or sad or overdone to me. My dad's family were immigrants; his father died young of cirrhosis of the liver, leaving my grandmother to raise her six living children (of a total of 13) on a cleaning woman's pay. So? Life was hard. They weren't Irish and they lived in New York, but when you hear that your dad occasionally trapped pigeons and roasted them to eat, you develop a certain, er, resistance to tales of woe. They worked hard and did the best they could. And in between, life coul

    Angela's Ashes: A Memoir PDF ´ Angela's Ashes: ePUB angela's pdf, ashes download, memoir ebok, Angela's Ashes kindle, Angela's Ashes A MemoirAngela's Ashes A Memoir EpubI think I read Angela’s Ashes by Frank McCourt initially when the book was first published. In high school at the time, my mother and I shared books. I was introduced to all of her favorite authors that way and most of these authors I still read now. One author who was new to both of us at the time was New York school teacher Frank McCourt who published a memoir of his life growing up in Brooklyn and Limerick, Ireland. As with most books from that era, I had vague recollections because I spent the next twenty years finishing high school and college and raising a family. Books I read in high school were not at the forefront of my mind. Since my youngest daughter transitioned to a full school day three years ago, I have gone back and read all of those forgotten to me b

Dishonest at every level, slimeball McCourt managed to parlay his mawkish maunderings to commercial success, presumably because the particular assortment of rainsodden cliches hawked in the book not only dovetails beautifully with the stereotypes lodged in the brain of every American of Irish descent, but also panders to the lummoxes collective need to feel superior because they have managed to transcend their primitive, bog-soaked origins, escaping the grinding poverty imagined in the book, to achieve - what? Spiritual fulfilment in the split-level comfort of a Long Island ranch home? And Frankie the pimp misses not a beat, tailoring his

    Angela's Ashes: A Memoir PDF ´ Angela's Ashes: ePUB angela's pdf, ashes download, memoir ebok, Angela's Ashes kindle, Angela's Ashes A MemoirAngela's Ashes A Memoir EpubThere once was a lad reared in Limerick,
    Quite literally without a bone to pick.
    His da used scant earnings
    To slake liquid yearnings;
    In American parlance – a dick.

    To get past a father who drank
    In a place that was dismal and dank,
    He wrote not in rhymes,
    But of those shite times
    A memoir that filled up his bank.

    Angela's Ashes: A Memoir PDF ´ Angela's Ashes: ePUB angela's pdf, ashes download, memoir ebok, Angela's Ashes kindle, Angela's Ashes A MemoirAngela's Ashes A Memoir EpubQuite different from other memoirs I read--especially the brand of memoir that's been coming out in the last few years--Frank McCourt's Angela's Ashes tells of the author's poverty-stricken childhood in Ireland in the early 20th century. It's told from the first person present perspective, which doesn't allow for as much mature reflection, but it does create a very immediate & immersive atmosphere. And speaking of atmosphere, McCourt writ

And then it seriously took my heart and ripped it into little shreds and stomped on the remains.

    When I read Angela's Ashes my children were really young, about the ages of Frank and his siblings at the start of the book. I found the story of their neglect-filled childhood in New York and Irela
